Registered Historic Sites
Due to Back Bay’s prime location, this neighborhood is a center for transit and entertainment. Home to iconic Newbury Street and the first branch of the Boston Public Library, this historic area is closely associated with the brick facades of its famous Brownstone apartments. The Charles River runs alongside the Back Bay and offers plenty to do in all four seasons. Storrow Drive, a major road that connects Boston and Cambridge, is close by, offering easy access to the two cities and Greater Boston. While the prices in Back Bay might be higher than other areas in Boston, buyers and renters are paying for convenience.
